Originally brewed at Belhaven for Innis & Gunn. Production moved to Wellpark - date unknown.
NOTE: This is the same beer as the Oak Aged Beer Rum Finish. According to Innis & Gunn "they are the same beer, the process changed slightly so we changed the name. But the recipe is the same."

Ingredients: Golden Promise and Crystal malt; Phoenix hops.
We are delighted to present this unique limited bottling of Innis & Gunn finished in oak barrels which previously contained navy rum. Maturation in special oak barrels imparts Navy rums with the sweet, spicy character for which they are renowned. We have long wondered what flavours might be imparted to our beer by finishing it in these same barrels and earlier this year we decided to find out. We brewed a special batch of Innis & Gunn beer and matured it in oak for 60 days. Every single drop spent half of that time in American oak barrels before being refilled into selected navy rum barrels to finish the lengthy maturation. Once the beer had absorbed the unique character the barrels were emptied, the beer blended and then maturation continued for a further 47 days until all of the flavours had married together and mellowed. We think the result is absolutely delicious!

6,8% "Innis & Gunn Rum Finish" op het etiket. Heler amber/rood koperkleurig bier met weinig wit schuim. Geur: moutzoet, licht fruitig, wat hout, ietwat leder. Smaak: zoet, karamel, wat melasse, licht fruitig, lichte rum toets. Volmondig. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: zoet, hout en wat kruiden op het einde.

Innis & Gunn Rum Aged Ale has a thin-to-medium ivory head, a chestnut brown, clear appearance, with some ascending bubbles and sheet glass lacing. Aroma is not strong, but some liquor, oak, and malt can be detected. Taste is of brown sugar, moderately-toasted malt, vanilla, oak, and a touch of balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Innis & Gunn Rum Aged Ale finishes mostly dry. RJT

Cerveza con sabor a maltas caramelizadas y un sabor a madera algo artificial.

Strong boozy in smell and taste. Rum notes pretty overpowering. Notes of coconut banana and hint of dark fruits. Certainly packs a punch but basically just rummy

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 A little boozy on the nose with hints of sweet malty caramel, taste is again boozy with a little sickly kick and of course a finish which scream rum

Wim (4174) - Weelde, BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2017
Together with Yves at his home dark amber colored body with an off white head and with a sweet fruity malt hop aroma a malt hop herby light sweet dry bitter taste with an alcholic bitter finish


Yves (3150) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2017
Shared with Wim at my home during komen eten. Amber colored beer with no head and no carbonation. Malty alcoholic aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet dry.

Belle robe ambrée / brune caramel, fine mousse blanche. Nez puissant de caramel, rhum, bois. Malheureusement en bouche c'est moins, on trouve une bière trop sucrée, peu pétillante, avec des saveurs de caramel, de miel et d'épices. Bière plate, longueur moyenne, très faible amertume, assez écoeurante sur la fin...

On bottle @Ølfred - Aarhus Streetfood.
Pours clear dark red. Scent of bad mixed rum/coke.
The texture is smooth and creamy. Notes of sweet liqourice and a hint of rum. very impressive.

Icedwarf (1839) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2017
Rum finish 6.8%. Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en licht bitter met iets van karamel. De rum niet echt kunnen ontdekken, desondanks best aardig bier.
